March Break at Story PlanetDSC_0011

Story Planet is opening its portal doors to the citizens of Earth during March Break! First, on Tuesday, March 15th from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., children between the ages of 10 and 13 are invited to participate in a 1-day stop motion workshop.

Participants will learn the basics of stop motion animation, and gather their own materials to make a short animation of their own and bring home a USB key with their original video.

Next, on Wednesday, March 16th from 10am-12pm Story Planet will be hosting a Storymaker Remix for participants in grades 2-7. With the guidance of a facilitator, participants will create a story as a group and then independently write their own ending. Children can also see their story come to life through the illustrations of one of our artists!

Contact to sign up for either day!

Barista Training

Mentored by our cafe manager, Naomi, volunteers will help to create drinks to quench the thirst of all long distance space travellers. We are looking for people who can commit for 3 months.
